Swastika Banner
A stern-jawed United States Sen-
ator yesterday stood on the steps of
Hill Auditorium under Ann Arbor's
grey morning skies to warn a congre-
gation of 3,000 serious and silent
Michigan students that our nation
today is roaring down a one-way
highway to war and destruction.
With one of the largest Peace
Rally audiences ever to assemble in
Ann Arbor packed on the plaza be-
fore him, Sen. Gerald P. Nye, of
N. Dakota, made an eloquent appeal
for peace that climaxed the most
stirring anti-war demonstration
which can be remembered by the
local campus-folk.
Bareheaded and shivering in a
chilly April breeze, Senator Nye
thundered out an attack upon Pres-
ident Roosevelt's partisan "neutral-
ity" and urged a program of calm
action and complete non-interven-
tion with affairs in Europe.
Hits Embargo Repeal
Branding the battles abroad as a
giant "bonfire," the North Dakota
isoltionist described the U.S. for-
eign policy as "trying , to see how
near tbe foreign flames of hate we
can comne without being burned."
He said that Secretary of State
Cordell Hull's recent warning to
Japan and President Roosevelt's
repeal-the-embargo policy were typ-
ical efforts by the administration
which are bringing us closer to war
than any of us realize." Sumner
Welles was pictured by him as "an-
other Cfl. House sent to Europe to
Senator Nye continued: "America
can't be half In a war and half out
at the same time-it doesn't take a
Confucius to realize that-but that
is precisely what we are doing now.
Our domestic economy is based on
the profits which can be reaped
from foreign wars. Apparently we
are, doing everything possible to in-
volve us; instead of minding our
own business!"
Swastika Flown
As Senator Nye made nis speech
the American flag fluttered from the
top of the 100-foot-high campus
flagpole, but only a few minutes
previously the swastika of Nazi Ger-
man had flown there.;
Prbably elevated through some
student prank, the swastika was dis-
covered early yesterdaymorning
and attracted the attention of hun-
dreds of students, local citizens and
photographers before Edward R.
McFadden. of the buiding and
grounds department made a hair-
raising climb up the pole and pulled
the banner down.
Preceding Senator Nye's address
Michigan students made an assault
on war. Carl Petersen, '40, -chair-
man of the Campus Peace Council-
a synthesis of all campus organiza-
tions which planned the rally-
pleaded that students everywhere
band together for peace and to
make "America the stronghold of
'Stronghold Af Freedom'
Petersen said: "Hundreds of thou-
sands of students on campuses all
over America today are speaking out
for peace because they know the
United States must be the encour-
agement of the world. When right
ard liberty are beaten down in Eu-
rope and Asia and oppression and
force have taken their place, Amer-
ica must be the stronghold of free-
dom. It must be a place in this
world where children can troop into
the schoolroom instead of the bar-

racks, where freedom of action, free-
dom of speech and freedom of the
press shall never fall before the
sword." The United States must, he
declared, be one country in which
the rights of "every segment of the
population are protected by our in-
stitutions, where life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness are not mere
empty -words." This must be so, he
concluded, in order that, when this
war is over, "the United States will

Trade Barriers

Gault Declares
Cut In Industrial Exports
Means Financial Loss,
Trade Conference Told
Michigan, primarily a manufac-
turing and exporting state, stands
to lose a great deal by adherence
to a principle of interstate trade bar-
riers, Prof. Edgar H. Gault of the
School of Business Administration
told delegates at the first day of
the Conference of Trade and Com-
mercial Secretaries yesterday in the
Manufacturing, heading the var-
ious braches of Michigan industries
in quantity, Professor Gault pointed
out, earns more than $4,000,000,000
per year for the state and is the
only type of industry which can be
termed carried on for export. The
residents of the state thus must de-
pend upon other states for products
of other industries, he added.
Paul T. Truitt of the U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce pointed out the
need for uniform standards through-
gut the nation in relation to inter-
state trade. This would doubtless
lead to reform of abuses found in
interstate trade barriers, he added.
The Constitution forbids states the
right of discrimination against one
another, basing this on the princi-
ple that free trade is a stimulus to
industry, Prof. E. S. Wolaver of the
School of Business Administration
told the delegates.
Union, WAA To Sponsor
First 'Sunday $Saunter'
The first of a series of Sunday
Saunters to be conducted jointly

morrow at the side entrance to the

The hike will be conducted by
Wayne Whitaker and will include
the Arboretum and continue down
the Huron River Valley.

Opening Address By
Of People's Wants
Democracy is a matter of deg
rather ,than a sharply defini
ideal, Prof. Paul Henle of the p
losophy department, the princ
speaker at the general session of
year's Spring Parley, said yester
at the Union.
"Any institution is democratic
sofar as any inequalities in PO
are delegated and are revokable
a majority involved in the inst
tion," Professor Henle said in
tempting a definition of the m;
theme of the entire Parley. Suc
of democracy is dependent not
much on the methods by whic-
functions as it is on the degree
which it satisfies the wants and
sires of the people involved,
The Parley, annual spring 1
session for students and fac
members, w0 continue today a
tomorrow in the Union. Pa
meeting today are "The W
Scene: Chaos or Cosmos?" w:
Martin Dworkis, '40, as chairm
"American Democracy; Now

in the chair; "The Campus Cc
munity: Amity or Enmity?" w:
Ellen Rhea, '41, as chairman; a
"University Training: Democr
or Autocratic?' at which Roger E
ley, '42, will preside. Following
panels, which will be held at 2
and 7:30 p.m., resolutions based

assemblage, and may later be pass
on to the student body in the fa
of a referendum, Daniel Huyett, .
general chairman of the affair s:
The Parley will close with a ft
session at 3 p.m. tomorrow.
Over 300 attended yesterday's s
sion, and considerable discuss
took place on the definition g

legs because it did not satisfy the
wants of the people. He mentioned
as aggravating factors the immense
inequality of income, wealth, and
the large number of unemployed.
In answer to a statement by Pro-
fessor Henle that people are primar-
ily concerned with their personal
problems and therefore asocial, El-
liott Maraniss, '40, said that all the
problems besetting this country to-
day were social to the nth degree,
and that the people concerned were
certainly not inclined to be asocial.
Professor Henle included in his
talk, beset at its conclusion by ques-
tions shot at both speaker and the
entire panel, by the audience, a
statement to the effect that student
government is unnecessary. The
mere fact that students are here
at the University to get aneduca-
tion to enable them to become citi-
zens of a democracy is no proof that
a University run by the students
would given any better education,
he said. Philip Westbrook, '40, took
issue with this portion of the speech.
Westbrdok claimed that students are
not anxious to run things, but mere-
ly to participate in the administra-
tion in those fields where the stu-
dent is vitally concerned.

Ken Doherty's track team opens

The meet is easily the most import- :

compete with the two teams which
finished right behind them in the in-z

Sixth Inning Rally
Earns Varsity Win
Coach Ray Fisher's Wolverine
baseball team turned opportunist
yesterday' afternoon, combined some
clever baserunning with the stellar
four-hit pitching of Jack Barry, and
walked off with an impressive 5-2
victory over Wisconsin in their firt
home appearance of the season.
Held to; two hits in the first five
innings by the Badgers' colorful Cy
Buker, who sported a sharp-breaking
curve and a chew the size of an
eight-ball in his jaw, Michigan fi-
nally reached the Wisconsin ace in
the sixth.
Bunching three hits and a walk
the Varsity ran berserk on the basE
paths to chalk up four big runs,
overcome a 2-1 deficit, and hang up
its first Big Ten triumph of the
Barry Starts Rally
Barry opened the big sixth him-
self with a line single to left field.
Captain Charlie ink bunted Wit-
fectly down the third base line and
was safe when Catcher AndySit
fell trying to field the ball.
Don Holman's bunt forced Barry
at third, but Pink took advantage
of a pitch into the dirt by Buker to
beat catcher Bob Willding's throw to
third base. Holman also moved up
a moment later on another semi.
wild pitch.
Mike Sofiak rapped a grounder to
short and again Pink slid safely un-
der Roland Amundson's throw to
the plate to tie the score. Holman,
who had advanced to third on the
play, put Michigan in the lead when
he rode home after Bill Steppon's
long fly to center field.
Trosko Triples 1
But the Wolverines weren't fin-
ished yet. Freddie Trosko, batting
star of the afternoon, then cracked
a long three-bagger to left to score
Sohiak with run number four.
Bud Chamberlain walked, and
promptly proceeded to pull off a
neat double steal with Trosko. The
Royal Oak third baseman set off
for second base to draw a throw
from catcher Wilding, while the
fleet-footed Trosko streaked home
ahead of the return throw for the
Varsity's final tally.
The start of the game, however,
had been none too auspicious for
the Wolverines. With one out in the
first half of the first, Steppon
muffed Smith's pop fly behind sec-
ond. Chamberlain then took Step-
han's grounder and threw wildly to
second in an attempt to force Smith,
whereupon Howie Rader's looping.
